The Divertimento String Quartet, based in Totnes, have an exciting new programme in October, with five different performances on their tour.
Ludwig van Beethoven – String Quartet Op 18 no 4 in C minor,
Heitor Villa Lobos – String Quartet no 1
Maurice Ravel – String Quartet in F
All three of these works they are performing in were composed by young men. A most stimulating and varied programme beginning with Beethoven in dramatic minor key mood. Villa Lobos’s Quartet is in six short movements which take the form of a suite, alternating song and dance movements. Ravel’s Quartet, which he dedicated to his teacher Faure, is one of the greatest works in the string quartet repertoire. This is altogether a varied and easily approachable programme.
